Notes by J.M. Margot

Béatrice describes this book as "A paper hypertext"
It is a work of art, made by an artist who specializes in "Paper Cutting".
The book is hard to describe, but contains the text of the story, a fold-out to reveal a photocopy of each page of the original manuscript, and special pockets containing an insert showing the notes of Jean-Michel Margot superimposed on the text.
See the site of Béatrice Coron for other examples of her work.
